Playing With Time

The next painting I would like to show you is ‘Playing with time’ – acrylic and collage on board. This one took quite a while. Some times as an artist you can get to a point where a piece of art looks finished but you know it’s not complete. It was some time before I was able to put the final touches to this but I am pleased with the result of my patience πŸ™‚Β

Painting

I have been itching for quite a while to do some painting. It has been over shadowed by admin, trying to earn money and making things to sell. But my itch has won and to my greatest of pleasure I have set myself up a still life!
